Drive On a Short Track and Support Our Athletes

Special Olympics Virginia will be the recipient of Track Laps for Charity at Richmond Raceway

Richmond Raceway will be hosting Track Laps for Charity on March 16th from 5 PM to 7 PM, to support Special Olympics Virginia athletes. The event is a unique opportunity for race fans and community members to take a lap around the track and help raise funds for Special Olympics Virginia.

Track Laps for Charity is a two-hour event where participants can drive their car around the ¾-mile track at Richmond Raceway. Registration is available online or in-person on the day of the event, but spots will fill up fast so we recommend registering online. For $20 participants can complete 5 laps around the track!

The funds raised through Track Laps for Charity will directly support Special Olympics Virginia, which provides year-round sports training and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics Virginia is dedicated to promoting inclusion and respect for people of all abilities, and the organization has a long-standing relationship with Richmond Raceway.

"We are incredibly grateful to Richmond Raceway for their ongoing support," said David Thomason, President of Special Olympics Virginia. "This event is a wonderful way to raise funds and awareness for our organization, while also having fun and getting active on the track."
